Although I am not single, I did not meet my husband until and, like Louisa Pateman, I feared all the good ones were already taken. I spent most of my years before that completely single while occasionally experiencing the sting of bad relationships.

Thank you to the author and BookTrib for my review copy of this memoir! Aug 29, Laura What's Hot? Pateman bares her soul in this memoir and I found myself gaping in horror at some stories, nodding sagely at some others and wanting to throw my fist in the air with a cheer at others still.

Much better than I expected and worth reading for any woman who has ever written a life checklist. Aug 26, Abbie rated it liked it. It's the story of a woman whose dreams of finding her "soulmate" and having kids before "turning old" her words, not mine goes tumbling out the window, into a pit of fire and burned to a crisp because she hasn't met the one for her. Some of the stories she tells are fucking hilarious, I highly recommend this to anyone wantin 3.

In it Pateman tells of her quest to find happily ever-after Instead she eventually has to forge her own, other path to get to that conclusion. Her memoir is filled with many international travel adventures and romances with men who don't turn out to be Mr. Rig 4. Right, uh-oh. Much of her storytelling is humorous as well as interesting and thought-provoking and I found her to be quite courageous with her career, her many moves and travels, and ultimately her plans to becoming a mother on her own. You go, girl. Nicely done.

No one knows what the future may hold, as we can only be hopeful that it would be what we deserve. Many of us go through life not knowing if things will work out in our favor or if we have to work extra hard for the things we want. There could be reasons why girls were taught to have the end all be all of marriage and children, but how does it hold up in the long run? Does true love exist? If it does, how come many people are struggling to obtain that experience with another person? Love should No one knows what the future may hold, as we can only be hopeful that it would be what we deserve.

Love should not be challenging to have, yet the search for a perfect person or "soul mate" seems to prove difficult.

As the title mentions, there are instances when our life plans don't exactly go according to our expectations. Is it because we have mapped out a timeline and want to achieve specific milestones by certain deadlines? Usually, we may feel that if we set our hearts and mind on something, it can be accomplished. The unfortunate thing to wonder is why life doesn't work out that way? The goal of a husband and children we instilled in women from a young age and most are looking to obtain all of that while being happy.

There's a saying, "if you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans," which seems to correlate with the concept of this book. Louisa has handwritten many plans for her life and she succeeded in fulfilling every successful task, except finding her husband and having children. She begins to understand contentment and not to have an ultimate focus on something that could take longer to have than her peers. The message within this book speaks volumes. Being single isn't as glorified as it should be because if you're a woman who is still single and childless, people begin to wonder if there's something wrong with you, which isn't true.

By being successful in school, career moves, constant traveling, there would always come a time you want to share those experiences with that special person.

Although she's had a couple of relationship experiences, thinking one of those guys was her potential husband, for it to not work out, was heart-crushing. It's commendable that she didn't give up, but continued pushing forward and steered her focus to her happiness until something changed.

I enjoyed reading this book because it provided a form of realism and relatability on what most women experience. Who doesn't want their happily ever after and to check things off their list of things to accomplish by a certain age. This book's hidden message is telling women that they must be happy with themselves and all they have accomplished thus far.

If it's meant to be, it will be without struggling to possess it.

I relate to the protagonist because I was also fed this notion that we should be married with children at a certain age, as that was to be our happily ever after. At this point in life, I've learned to just be happy and healthy, and if it's in my cards for this "model" of my future, it will happen. I highly recommend this book to girls and women to read, understand, and take away that life is what you make it, including your happiness.
